Critic Reviews for Gabriela

  • Whenever the film wanders away from Gabriela, it seems to dawdle aimlessly before finding her again.

  • There is no real chemistry between the bar owner and his wonderful lover, [so] even the most dedicated filmgoer is eventually reduced to waiting for what we used to call the good parts.

    March 13, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Number one item on the agenda, however, is the camera's on-going perusal of the Braga bod. Mastroianni as Gabriela's main man lends an air of consequence to the proceedings.

    March 13, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The exploration of the senses that was portrayed joyously in [Jorge] Amado's novel comes to seem exploitative in Bruno Barreto's movie.

    February 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A fun comedy that outlines a profile of Brazilian society in 1925. [Full Review in Spanish]

    February 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The film's focus should have been on the way the unswervingly chauvinistic Mastroianni is forced to compromise his principles to save his marriage. But such is Barreto's fixation with Braga's body that the tone is almost risibly soft-core.

Audience Reviews for Gabriela

  • Jul 21, 2012
    Based on Jorge Amado's novel, Gabriela it's a erotic drama by Bruno Barreto with terrific actings by Marcello Mastroianni and Sonia Braga. A chronicle about costum, society, sex and love. Gabriela have the bold of present nudity and sex scenes, showing the beauty in human body and love between the characters of Gabriela and Nacib. Fresh.
